Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival

Register for your Vendor Booth Now!  Complimentary Parade/Invasion Spot for Your Jeep Will End on Friday


The 2015 Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival will be here before we know it!  We hope you are planning to join us in the birthplace of the Jeep, June 12-14.


If you haven't registered to be a vendor yet and you want to be part of our Jeep Parade/Jeep Invasion, we suggest you register asap this week.  That's because we will not be able to hold complimentary vendor spots after this Friday, March 27.  During the vendor registration process, you can select the opportunity to include your Jeep in the Parade/Invasion.  Your Jeep's VIN number is required when you register so be sure to have that information.  Check out our Parade/Invasion page for more information.


The Parade/Invasion Jeeps will need to be at Butler County Community College between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 12.  All vendor booths MUST be open until 4 p.m. on Friday so if you want to take advantage of a complimentary Invasion spot, remember that your booth will need to remain staffed and open until 4.


Even if you aren't planning to participate in the Parade/Invasion, please register for your vendor space soon so we can include your company on the vendors page of our website.


If you have any questions, please email or call 724-234-2291.  Hope to see you in June!

About the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival 
The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival is organized by the Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau with support from the Butler County Historical Society, Butler Downtown, other local organizations and a group of committed volunteers and Jeep enthusiasts.  Together, they are creating a signature annual event celebrating Butler, Pa.'s role as the birthplace of the jeep.  The Festival takes place in Downtown Butler and at Coopers Lake Campground, near Slippery Rock, Pa. 


The inaugural event in 2011 attracted more than 1,300 Jeep participants from 25 states.  Festival activities were attended by more than 30,000 spectators.  The Festival was awarded a Guinness World Record for the Longest Parade of Jeeps.  In 2012, nearly 1,500 Jeeps from 25 states participated in the event, a 14% increase from the previous year.  In 2013, the Festival grew to three full days and was held on a new date at a new location, offering more trails and room for expansion.  More than 1,500 Jeeps from 29 states came to Butler to celebrate the father of all Jeeps over Father's Day weekend.
